A serious hardware issue at the beginning of the month, sped up our decision to end the public alpha for RSS Mixer. For those of you who used the service, we sincerely apologize for the abrupt end to the free service. The site had nearly 47,000 feeds and over 4 million posts in the database.
We’re currently rethinking the future of the public site and we may make service available again sometime in the future. In the meantime, we are still using it to power the Museum Blogs directory site, we also see it as key element for our new multi-touch tables, download movies, and for the Open Exhibits proposal. We’ll keep you posted as to our future plans for RSS Mixer.
